Generation of multiple binary and continuous non-normal variables simultaneously given the marginal characteristics and association structure based on the methodology proposed by Demirtas et al. (2012) <DOI:10.1002/sim.5362>.

Generating multiple binary and normal variables simultaneously given marginal characteristics and association structure based on the methodology proposed by Demirtas and Doganay (2012) <DOI:10.1080/10543406.2010.521874>.

Generation of samples from a mix of binary, ordinal and continuous random variables with a pre-specified correlation matrix and marginal distributions. The details of the method are explained in Demirtas et al. (2012) <DOI:10.1002/sim.5362>.

Simulation of bivariate uniform data with a full range of correlations based on two beta densities and computation of the tetrachoric correlation (correlation of bivariate uniform data) from the phi coefficient (correlation of bivariate binary data) and vice versa.

Modeling the correlation transitions under specified distributional assumptions within the realm of discretization in the context of the latency and threshold concepts. The details of the method are explained in Demirtas, H. and Vardar-Acar, C. (2017) <DOI:10.1007/978-981-10-3307-0_4>.

A method for multivariate ordinal data generation given marginal distributions and correlation matrix based on the methodology proposed by Demirtas (2006).

Pseudo-random number generation for 11 multivariate distributions: Normal, t, Uniform, Bernoulli, Hypergeometric, Beta (Dirichlet), Multinomial, Dirichlet-Multinomial, Laplace, Wishart, and Inverted Wishart. The details of the method are explained in Demirtas (2004) <DOI:10.22237/jmasm/1099268340>.

Implementation of a procedure for generating samples from a mixed distribution of ordinal and normal random variables with pre-specified correlation matrix and marginal distributions.

Generation of multiple count, binary and continuous variables simultaneously given the marginal characteristics and association structure. Throughout the package, the word 'Poisson' is used to imply count data under the assumption of Poisson distribution.

Generation of multiple count, binary and ordinal variables simultaneously given the marginal characteristics and association structure. Throughout the package, the word 'Poisson' is used to imply count data under the assumption of Poisson distribution.

Generation of a chosen number of count, binary, ordinal, and continuous random variables, with specified correlations and marginal properties.

Generation of multiple count, binary, ordinal and normal variables simultaneously given the marginal characteristics and association structure.

Generation of count (assuming Poisson distribution) and continuous data (using Fleishman polynomials) simultaneously.

Generates multivariate data with count and continuous variables with a pre-specified correlation matrix. The count and continuous variables are assumed to have Poisson and normal marginals, respectively. The data generation mechanism is a combination of the normal to anything principle and a connection between Poisson and normal correlations in the mixture.

Generation of univariate and multivariate data that follow the generalized Poisson distribution. The details of the univariate part are explained in Demirtas (2017), and the multivariate part is an extension of the correlated Poisson data generation routine that was introduced in Yahav and Shmueli (2012).
